canon belle

cumbria [completed 2023]

A beautiful family home built on the banks of Lake Windermere. The home utilises an additive aesthetic whereby contextual parts are split into seperate elements to help break up the mass of the large dwelling into more modest components. In inception the house is percieved as a series of contextual boat houses that face end on, upon the lake.

The house celebrates the local Cumbrian aesthetic and utilises natural stone that was washed down from the local hills and sourced from a water course that was blocked and flooding local farm land. Designed By Snook Architects and built by Snook Construction.
